Cigarette consumption by age

 Canadian Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey, 2013. See data table with 95% confidence intervals below.In 2013, average daily cigarette consumption varied significantly between age groups.18 Consumption was lowest among the youngest smokers, at just over nine cigarettes per day (CPD) for smokers aged 15-19, and appeared to increase with age to more than 15 CPD for smokers aged 55 and older (Figure 1.9).

The same general pattern of increasing consumption with age (and often a slight drop after 55) held for most years between 1999 and 2013, although with some variation (Figure 1.10). Between 1999 and 2013, average daily cigarette consumption appears to have decreased overall in all age groups.
